Propsed Master Plan Patna



PATNA: The state urban development and housing department (UDHD) on Thursday uploaded the draft Patna master plan on its website for seeking suggestions and objections, if any, from the public during the next two months.

The new master plan has come after 33 years, said UDHD minister Samrat Chaudhary. After public suggestions, the draft will be sent to the cabinet for its final approval. He said the department was burning the midnight oil to bring the new set of building bylaws. The absence of bylaws was hampering the construction sector in Bihar.

UDHD secretary Sandeep Pondrik said the last official plan for the city development lapsed in 1981. He said the common people can access the master plan on the department's premises besides its website and offices of the six urban local bodies incorporated in the plan.

According to the cadastral maps of the plan displayed by the experts from the Centre for Environment Planning and Technology (CEPT), Ahmedabad, the Patna metropolitan region includes Bihta, Danapur, Khagaul, Daniyawan, Fatuha, Khusrupur, Maner, Masaurhi, Naubatpur, Phulwarisharif, Punpun and Sampatchak blocks and the entire area is divided into seven zones — residential, commercial, mixed land, industrial, public and semipublic land, urban agriculture zones and no-development zones. That apart, the provision of five satellite towns have also been made keeping in mind the rate of population increase in the city in the next 20 years.

The state cabinet on July 25 had declared the "plan area" of over 1,167 square km against the existing 250 square km, with urban area of over 600 square km and over 400 square km as green cover, making the city comparatively greener besides over 16% of the total area proposed for the construction of roads.
